The Coal Deal The publicity of the manipulations of the railroad interests whereby ft -is shown that they own and control the hard and soft coal fields, will flfeartle the most sluggish mind into activity on the question of the concentration of capital and po%\er mtu the hands of a \ery few. The movements of organization today both of labor and capital are becoming more rapid The predictions of those who declare that consolidations will continue until the people in sheer self-protection will fce forced to take charge of the trusts themselves to prevent being crushed, seem to have every evidence of fact The people are patient. They w i l l endure long: but they will not en- 4nre everything, nor always -When fuel is rising in price, and competition is eliminated and such facts as this gigantic coal deal are brought out. it certainly cannot be passed by in silence. Protect the Young Man He was a yoxrag man, a mere youth, but he was in the tempter's snare, there could be no doubt about that, for he reeled against the railing and leaned heavily upon it for support. As I passed that he tried to conceal his face from the pa-serbj e\idenced the fact that in spite of tfisstpation there still remained a ?park of manhood and pride. Instinctively my thoughts Be\\ backward and I thought of the mother triiose heart was perhaps almost bursting v\ith pride and joy when her Crst born was placed \vithm her arms, and no\\ the same heart yearning and aching and bleeding because of its weakness ''In the name of Heaven 7 ' I thought "\vhen will this stupendous problem be solved?' It sorely is not entirely the fault ot the saloonkeeper, although God alone flfttows how he can reconcile himself to the fact that he is leading, and mot blindly leading, for the e\il of it all is constantly before him. hundreds of young men to mental, moral, physical and financial rum. It is sometimes argued that the \oung man should have been educated along lines that would enable him to realize and avoid the dangers by which he is surrounded, but ala^--' Y\ ho is sufficient?" Into this damnable pit good men and great ha\ e fallen, and closely following in their foot- are the youth, the flower and chivalry of young manhood. tt is-such an old story, \\orn threadbare, but to each father and mother the sorrow is always ne\\ and the remedy ever beyond their reach. I have sometimes wondered n any man has any more legal or moral right t» establish and make attractive a place calculated to entice my son to atfltost certain downfall, than a v\*wian ha s to open a house and furnish attractions which would cvcntua'lv lead my daughter to destruction. ft has been truly said that no actual reform was ever forced. It t be with the individual, or it \\ill prove to be simply a s housor built tfte sands, which the first incoming tide will bear away to nothing- It may be that some time m the coming years there will arise from Ac ashes of ruined homes, from the graves of murdered victims, from the .crushed hearts of mother, and wives, a remonstrance that will rev- the world. Love and YY^dom and Justice will awaken from lethargic, slumber and form a blessed triumvirate, willing and able and control the evil which has thus far baffled the wisdom of Ac ages. Then indeed, v\ill there be a new Heaven and a new Earth all the sons and daughters of God will shout for joy. B. S. B. TO CINCINNATI.

Tirf« "When I first aspired to be a hotel :lerk 1 was sure the occupation was one jf the most desirable positions in the list of man's employment. Since that time [ have found so many obstacle* to disprove the first opinion I ofttimes get lespondent and wish I were one ol the ·white wings' on the street." So spoke one of the brightest young men who stand behind the hotel desk in a certain Washington hotel, relates the Star. At the time he seemed thoroughly disgusted with life, and the air bore a j deep bluish hue about him, thus indicat- ! tng that there had been a storm brewing. A Star reporter chanced into the lobby at the time, and to him the despondent clerk told this story of ill- fortune. He said: "One never knows this world until be has stood behind the desk of a hotel and Jstened to the complaints of the traveling public. Little things that to you and me seem* insignificant serve as mountains to many travelers, and they never seem satisfied until they are at the desk pouring out their tales of woe. Particularly has this feet been impressed upon me within the past hour. "About an hour ago a dapper young fellow walked up to the desk and complained that his dress suit case had not arrived at the hotel. He had registered five minutes before that and seemed to think his baggage should have been here when he stepped out of the carriage. I told him it would soon be here, but he growled, and then had the nerve to ask me to go down to the station and hnrry it up. Of course I went? Well, I guess not. "Because I refused he created a scene, and told me that the next time he came to Washington he would stop at another hotel. While he was making himself prominent another guest hurried up to the desk and wanted me to go out and get his laundry, which had been sent out this morning. I could not do that and then he became angry. "Just then a woman approached the deslc and asT\ed me if Mrs. Stuyvesant had telephoned for her this morning. Now, you know. I should know all about the telephone and should have been able to tell her at once. Because 1 asked the telephone operator she became indignant and told me it was a wonder hotel' clerks could not remember such little matters, and politely informed me she would inform the manager "While she tvas giving me a section of her mind another guest hurried up to the desk and told me he was dissatisfied with his room and wanted another at once. The hotel was packed to the limit, and another room was not available I asked him what the objection was to the room he was assigned. He said; "Well, I like to look out on the street, and the room I have faces the side street.' The funny part of that man's kick was he arrived after night and was called at daylight this morning. He will be out all day, and the chances are that he will not occupy his room half the time he is here. "As yon came Into the lobby, however, the straw to break the camel's back was placed upon me. A woman asked me if she could not keep her pei flog in the parlor. She said he barked and annoyed her while she was asleep and she would like to have him kept some place remote from her room 1 told her it was impossible to use the parlor for the keeping of aogs. 'Well,' said she, 'I would havt you understand my dog is a good bit better than any hotel clerk I ever saw, and much better than the run of guests you have in this hotel.' If she had been a man-there would have been a fight."

The close Interrelations between sciences ana the immediate practical ce~ suits trom a seemingl and remote discover}" have often been illustrated in modern times, but never so dramatically as in the case of radium, says American Medicine. It is said that the entire amount of the pure element that has been extracted by chemists is less than a teaspoonful. But in. a year a study of the minute properties of thes.e\ few grains has apparently revolutionized physics and chemistry, almost if not absolutely abolished, at least theoretically, the atomic theory of matter, which with gravitation seemed the most certain of truths. Where it will end no one can foresee. One wonders ff the greatest mystery of physics, gravitation, is soon to be explained. Immediately that radium is studied, a medical use is found. From Vienna comes the report that In the clinic of Prof. Gussenbau? r there has been one cure of chronic carcinoma. /The RatheraftmnT ceremony gone through with e\ ery j ears has just been accomplished, and that is the "marking" of th« young swans, or cygnets, on the Upper Thames The swans are of course, a feature of the river after Richmond is passed.

The swan markers are a picturesque company.

The "marfcers" embark in half a dozen skiffs, at toe stern of which flies either the king's flag a white field with a crown and the royal cipher "IT R .'* or the bannerettes of one at the two companies The gallant company sets out from Molesey Lock, and afterthat tnfngsare pretty lively, forthe operation of"mark- ine" swans--eren voune swans--fs trc holiday pastime The birds fight TF-f furies.

One physician determined, as a last resort, to try radium rays, and treated the afflicted parts by exposing them to the light of radium bromid, the strongest radinm preparation in existence. He was rewarded by a gradual and complete disappearance of the tumors. Physicians at the same meeting reported that radium rays had cured a case of melanosarcoma and several cases of red mole.
